Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Lisa moved to Austin to attend college at The University of Texas at Austin and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Communications and a minor in Business. Throughout her time at UT, she participated in various student and volunteer organizations, where her love for people and making a difference in the local community began to grow and flourish. Through a life-changing encounter with Christ her senior year, she felt the call to stay in Austin upon graduation and help build up His kingdom with the local church in Austin.
Through the years, Lisa’s desire to empower those within the community, especially youth, coupled with the constant reminder of God’s love, grace, and the life-transforming power of the Gospel, has given her a greater purpose to pursue things greater than this world and to further glorify His name and make Him known. She is so excited to see God move within the ministry of Side by Side Kids and is so privileged to be able to participate and be a part of His greater plan.
Out of the office, Lisa is a certified yoga instructor and can easily be found at the yoga studio, doing anything outdoors, or looking for the next up and coming coffee shop in Austin. She serves as a teacher within the children’s ministry at Harvest Mission Community Church and loves seeing God grow the seeds that are sown.
